Irie Weddings & Events (formerly Cannabis Concierge Events and Buds & Blossoms) was founded just as recreational cannabis became legal in Colorado in January, 2014. From the simple combination of cannabis and roses in bouquet, sprung forth a need for an entirely new breed of wedding planner and service provider. Irie was created as a one-stop-shop to help couples navigate the twists and turns of planning a cannabis wedding and take the stress of over-consumption off their plates with hosted bud bars and a plethora of cannabis knowledge and apparatuses.
The wedding industry was a challenging one to break into with such stigma surrounding cannabis, but the Irie team strives to represent sophistication while focusing on moderation and best practices. Irie continues to be a leading force in the cannabis space as well as setting standards for other wedding planning professionals with an emphasis on remaining classy and compliant when to comes to social cannabis consumption.
Irie is also one of the founders of the Cannabis Wedding Expo. The mission of these events are to normalize social cannabis consumption at weddings and other private events where love, joy, community and diversity are celebrated and embraced across the country. Though the owners of Irie are no longer involved in the Expos, they fully support the efforts of the CWE team to take these events to new heights.
